@Snoop Dogg and @ImCharlie Wilson – Peaches and Cream Produced by @Pharrell Williams [FULL STREAM]

Snoop Dogg, Uncle Charlie Wilson and Pharrell combined for the classic “Beautiful” years back and now they are back at it.   Fresh off of a 7MM+ verdict against him in the Blurred Lines drama, Pharrell lays a dope laid back track that is ideal for Snoops flow and Uncle Charlie’s vocal embellishments.    We really dig this joint.

Letoya Luckett & T.I. Team Up For The Latest Single Off Her Upcoming Album ‘Until Then.’ The track, titled “Don’t Make Me Wait,” originally released last year as a teaser for Letoya’s third solo studio album, which is set to release later this year. This time around, King of the South T.I. has decided to contribute a verse to Luckett’s single. The timing of this collaboration could not have been better, since the former Destiny’s Child member plans to release her album in the coming months, and T.I. very recently confirmed a sequel to the movie ATL.

New Music From Sango & SPZRKT does not disappoint. When Sango & SPZRKT first collaborated on JMK and Used To The Melody, they made it clear that we should expect nothing but quality music whenever these two get together. Recently, they dropped a joint-EP titled “Hours Spent Loving You.” The chill-sounding tracks are driven by Sango’s producing skills and complimented well by SPZRKT’s vocals.

This song right here titled “How Do You Love Meis our favorite of the bunch.

Krs. Has A Knack For Flipping These New Drake Tracks @producedbykrs

Drake

DJ Krs. has a knack for flipping these new Drake Tracks. There isn’t much out there on Krs. other than his Soundcloud and Twitter pages. His soundcloud, however, definitely speaks for itself. Since the release of Drake’s “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,” Krs. has taken to the studio to add his own twist to “Company” and “Jungle.” The remixes give the originals a run for their money.

Have a Listen!

#LongPlayLove: Blackalicious’ Nia – Celebrating 15 Years by Justin Chadwick @justin_chadwick @blackalicious_ @ChiefXcel @realgiftofgab

IMAGE_soulhead_long_play_love_blackalicious_nia_02_29_00-2
Happy 15th Birthday to Blackalicious’ debut LP Nia, originally released February 29, 2000.

Nearly 20 years ago, during my sophomore year at UCLA, I was fortunate enough to complement my studies with an extra-curricular activity that could not have been more perfectly designed for my interests. I volunteered for the student-managed Cultural Affairs Commission, an organization primarily renowned for its annual JazzReggae Festival that draws thousands of music heads to campus each year and celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2016.  As its Director of Hip-Hop Concerts, I organized and promoted a series of free performances on campus, and the experience was my first formal foray into the business of music, a career that I would continue to develop during and after my time in Westwood.

John Legend & Common Speak, Perform With Conviction [FULL VIDEO] @johnlegend @common

John Legend and Common Speak, Perform with Conviction

John Legend & Common Speak, Perform With Conviction

Ever since we first heard the song early this year, “Glory” has been soulhead.com’s favorite thing about this year’s Oscar campaign season. Inspired by the powerful Selma, and freshly off the early campaigns of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, the song has voiced the animus of the age.

But more than just a song, Mr. Legend and Mr. Common Sense used their platform as the latest hip-hop generation Academy Award winners to speak out on the tragic ills of the modern prison-industrial complex. Their speech was an act of resistance and one to be commended. Watch both the stirring performance and the enlightening victory speech below.

King BNJMN flips Chris McClenney’s “Lady.” King BNJMN is a talented producer from the island of Jamaica. His debut project Wanderlust released this past July and included remixes of artists like SZA, Tinashe, and Ciara. His latest work is an ultra-smooth flip of Chris McClenney’s recently released track “Lady.” For the sake of comparison, we’ve added the original too, which delivers a more raw, straightforward harmony of piano and vocals.

#LongPlayLove: Tricky’s Maxinquaye – Celebrating 20 Years by Justin Chadwick @justin_chadwick @KnowleWestboy @MartinaTB

Happy 20th Birthday to Tricky’s debut album Maxinquaye, originally released February 20, 1995.

In the summer of 1998, I travelled to – and fell madly in love with – England for the first time. While I spent most of my time discovering as much of London as I could in an all-too-short week’s time, I also had the pleasure of roadtripping it to a handful of lovely towns beyond the capital. Bath, Brighton, and York were some of the more memorable cities I visited, and I even made it up to Edinburgh, Scotland, which I enjoyed very much. And while each of these places satisfied whatever touristy urges I was feeling at the time, one town I visited had particularly special appeal for me: Bristol. Read more of this post

Tom Misch x Amy Winehouse Make Smooth Remix of “Rehab” [FULL STREAM] @TomMisch

http://www.soulhead.com/wp-content/uploads/avatars-000111373646-ja6sqf-t500x500.jpg

 

Tom Misch and Amy Winehouse make for a smooth remix of “Rehab.” Tom Misch was featured on our Playlist of Dope Songs you might have missed last year, and he’s back in 2015 with some more soulful sound for the ears. The London-based producer has a knack for revamping classics with a refreshing, jazzy sound. Perhaps even more impressive, however, is that fact that he’s only 19.

At Last! New Music From Chance the Rapper [FULL STREAM] @chancetherapper

http://www.soulhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013chancetherapper2_jb070813.jpg

 

At Last! New Music From Chance the Rapper. Ever since the Chicago rapper dropped Acid Rap almost two years ago, he’s spent most of his time on tour with his band, the Social Experiment, and dabbling in other artistic mediums like short films. Occasionally, however, he shares some of his music with the masses. This past Valentine’s Day was one of those occasions, as Chance dropped “Lady Friend.” In true Chance fashion, there’s some singing, saxophoning, and unique flowing.

Check out the latest release from Chance The Rapper, “Lady Friend”

ELHAE’s Aura EP Is Here [FULL STREAM] @elhae

ELHAE's Aura EP Is Here

ELHAE’s Aura EP Is Here. ELHAE came up on our radar with the release of his last single “Halfway Love.” The Atlanta Rapper/Singer/Producer brings a nice style to the table. His sound is predicated off of production and sampling, while his lyrics seem to be more of a compliment than a focus. His debut EP “Aura” is most definitely a refreshing sound from a young artist. The slow-paced collection of sounds, samples, singing and rapping is nice to throw on, sit down, and vibe to.

Check it out for yourself!

#LongPlayLove: Amel Larrieux’s Infinite Possibilities – Celebrating 15 Years by Justin Chadwick @justin_chadwick @amellarrieux

Happy 15th Birthday to Amel Larrieux’s debut album Infinite Possibilities, originally released February 15, 2000.

Nearly twenty years ago, a fundamental paradigm shift occurred within contemporary soul music, signaling what would arguably become the most vibrant and artistically fruitful period the genre has experienced in the past two decades. Having achieved mainstream popularity in a remarkably short amount of time, the new jack swing era of the late 1980s and early 1990s reached its inevitable stagnation point by the mid-1990s. In its wake, a new musical movement surfaced: neo-soul. Read more of this post
